”There is no “one-size-fits-all” approach in Human Resources Management, especially in international development. As professionals we need to work in close partnership with client organisations to devise appropriate best fit HR solutions that are congruent with the unique circumstances of the organization, including its culture, operational processes, and the environment they operate. Only HR strategies that consider the particular needs of both the organization and its people are sustainable.
